We have an extended Viking Village this year which will open every day from 11am to 5pm. Come and see how the Vikings lived in an authentic 13th Century village - talk to them about their way of life; learn about how they made their clothes, weapons, jewellery and food. Ask the Vikings about their religion, beliefs, homes, crafts, ships, their homeland and why they left it. This year the re-enactment group Swords of Dalriada will be in the Viking Village with Viking traders from Germany, Sweden and Ireland.
Schools visits to the Village are particularly welcomed and are normally in conjunction with a visit to Vikingar! and the award winning historical and action packed Viking Experience which is a short walk from the Village. To book a visit please contact Vikingar! on 01475 689777. Schools can visit the Village without booking but no guarantee can be given that a Viking will be available to conduct the class around the Village. Pupil and Teacher packs will be available for download from this site towards the end of June.
The entry fee of £5 for Adults and £2 for Children/Concessions (over 60s and students) gives admission throughout the day of purchase. Under 5s free.
Please note the Village will close from 1.30 to 2.30 p.m. on 29 August to enable the re-enactors to participate in the opening parade and at 4.30pm on Saturday 5th September for the Party at the Pencil.
